Can Your Warehouse Management System be integrated with Your ERP System?

January 31st 2014 09:00:03 AM



As we discussed earlier this week, integration between your company’s ERP and warehouse management system (WMS) is important. Without it, you could be wasting valuable time reentering data and unknowingly creating errors in your system. The key to proper ERP – WMS integration, however, depends on the warehouse management system you have selected to use in your warehouse. There are many factors to consider before you purchase a warehouse management system: cost, user-friendliness, adaptability, software functionality, implementation time and cost, and its ability to deliver upon your company’s unique needs.

The selection process is not easy. That’s why many manufacturers and distributors look to their trusted ERP vendors to suggest a viable solution for their business. While we could write several lengthy articles designed to help you choose the perfect solution, our main piece of advice would be this: make sure the warehouse management module you purchase complements your current ERP system. Too many companies make the mistake of purchasing a warehouse management system only to find out that it doesn’t complement their current system and requires a large amount of customization before it can be integrated with ERP. Don’t let this happen to you!

Our warehouse management solutions are designed specifically for Sage 100 ERP (formerly MAS 90 ERP and MAS 200 ERP) and Sage 500 ERP (formerly MAS 500 ERP) users. That means, you need any warehouse management solution you purchase from us will integrate seamlessly into your Sage 100 ERP or Sage 500 ERP system. This makes warehouse management a breeze!

If you have further questions about the integration process, stay tuned to our blog. We will continue to guide you through the WMS selection process so you can experience effortless warehouse management with your current ERP system.
